Tea with Winnicott. Brett Kahr. - London : Karnac Books, 2016. - 304 p.; 23x15 cm. - Interviews with icons .

"Donald Winnicott is currently the most popular author in contemporary psychoanalysis. His writings are cited in bibliographies even more frequently than those of Sigmund Freud. And yet how many mental health professionals have actually managed to read and digest the nearly twenty published volumes of Winnicott's books, chapters, essays, reviews, and letters Professor Brett Kahr, an award-winning biographer and scholar of long-standing, has resurrected Donald Woods Winnicott from the dead and has invited him for a memorable cup of tea at 87 Chester Square - Winnicott's London residence - in which the two men discuss Winnicott's life and work in compelling detail.After digesting Kahr's highly accessible "posthumous interview" with Winnicott, readers will have come to acquire a thorough overview of Winnicott's corpus of writings, and will appreciate the historical context in which he scripted his pioneering psychoanalytical contributions.A highly creative exercise in "imaginative non-fiction", this book - the first in a new series entitled Interviews with Icons - will delight novices and experienced professionals alike.Lavishly illustrated by Alison Bechdel, winner of the MacArthur Foundation "Genius" award, with original drawings of Winnicott based on unpublished photographs of Winnicott from Kahr's own archive, this book will be the perfect guide for both Winnicott students and scholars, and the ideal gift for colleagues with an interest in the man and his work."--Provided by publisher.
